AWC center at Belwata lack basic facilities: Vimukti Pothnal

Anganwadi is a type of rural mother and child care centre in India that were started by the Indian government in 1975 as part of the Integrated Child Development Services program to combat child hunger and malnutrition. A part of the Indian public health care system, these Anganwadi centres provides basic health care in Indian villages. Basic health care activities include contraceptive counseling and supply, nutrition education and supplementation, as well as pre-school activities. These centers provide supplementary nutrition, non-formal pre-school education, nutrition and health education, immunization, rehydration salts, basic medicines, health check-up and referral services of which later three services are provided in convergence with public health systems.

Itís very sad to say many of our AWC centers in Manvi do not have these basic facilities and the lack of minimal infrastructure, such as kidís benches, table, stools carpets; teachers chair black boardís drinking water, limited space, lack of playgrounds, teaching materials and the AWCs find unhygienic conditions. As a result many of poor parents are not willing to send their children to AWC centers. Vimukti strongly recommends looking into the matter very seriously.
